Child Support

Metro Atlanta Child Support and Family Law Attorney

The State of Georgia mandates both parents to responsibly provide for the care and support of their minor child. Child support was established as a means of meeting this responsibility in the event of a divorce or situation where the parents are unmarried.

HOW Does This WORK?

iStock_000018029365_MediumChild support is made by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent on a monthly or bi-monthly basis to help defray expenses incurred for the minor child. This support usually lasts until the child reaches the age of adulthood.

You may be going through a divorce and need to establish a claim for support, or you may need to file support in the event the other parent is not meeting their parental obligations. Our staff can provide representation to help fill out any forms, appear in court and educate you on the process. The amount of support is determined by the financials obtained and the decision of the presiding judge.

If you have a child support order established and the non-custodial parent is not meeting their obligation, we can represent you in taking enforcement action. Or, there may be situations where a parent may feel that they have been unjustly treated, and they need an advocate on their behalf.

Having adequate representation prior to agreeing to any settlement is important in making sure parental responsibilities and financial obligations are equitably distributed. This can be complicated in divorce proceedings, and could be held up by lengthy and complicated situations. We work to get financial compensation when needed prior to the final settlement to ensure the minor child is being provided for. Let us help you through the process to ensure a positive resolution.
